‘Creating the Magic of Flavour Together’ is our vision at Bart, we are all about flavour and elevating meals to distinctive status using our knowledge and expertise in herbs, spices and ingredients.  We have been sourcing and selling the very best ingredients since 1965 and were pioneers in bringing Fairtrade and Organic herbs and spices to the UK market.  That entrepreneurial spirit still guides us today with relentless enthusiasm.

Every recipe we develop, every seasoning we prepare, we do so with the utmost care and attention to detail, allowing the herbs and spices to sing.  Whether it is a Ground Cinnamon from Sri Lanka, a Black Garlic paste, a Thai Green paste or Garam Masala spice blend, authentic depth of flavour is the ultimate measure.

You can find us under the Bart brand or in private label solutions for major retailers, we also contract pack for other brands, across our two sites in Bristol (dry goods) and Newbury (wet goods).
